What is the ReWalk 6.0 Exoskeleton?
The ReWalk 6.0 Personal System is a wearable, battery-powered exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with lower-limb disabilities, such as paraplegia, to stand upright and to walk. ReWalk is the first FDA cleared exoskeleton for rehabilitation and personal use in the United States. Designed for everyday use by individuals at home and in their communities, the ReWalk is custom-fit to each user. If you meet the medical criteria for use, the ReWalk can be tested during one of Gaylord's ReWalk Clinic Days with our trained physical therapists.
For inpatients, our Ekso Robotic Exoskeleton is being used with many of our spinal cord and stroke patients. But Ekso is not approved for in-home use at this time. By offering the Ekso and/or the ReWalk to eligible individuals, our goal is to offer the best options that meet specific needs throughout recovery.
To see if you are a candidate to trial the ReWalk fill out this form and a ReWalk Clinical Specialist will be in touch. Or contact Gaylord Outpatient Appointments at (203) 284-2888. See the the Contact Info at the bottom of the page.
